We Live & Work in What We Design

Every custom home design company should do the same. The cobbler should wear the shoes he makes so that he understands how to make them more comfortable for his customers.


Dreams About Your Special Place. . .

You have dreams about your future, your retirement, your family, your relationships, your business, how you want to live. Many of us feel that some major event (like retirement) must first take place before we can start to live the real dreams we have always wanted. As if there is some reason you have to achieve yet another big objective before it is your turn. Isn’t it your turn now?

HOME ARCHITECTS ® are Passionate About: Creating a Custom New House for You

We enjoy what we do! We design nice homes of all sizes, shapes in all sorts of different locations. It makes us happy and energized and this positive feeling pervades our overall designs, our details, the construction, and your living within them. Happy healthy energy is part of each of our creations. We find it interesting that people touring our built projects seem to feel this warmth and express to us: “This really feels good! I want a house design like this!”


OUR LOCAL GEOGRAPHY (however, we design projects ALL over the USA and the World):

At the south end of the Appalachian chain of mountains are the Blue Ridge Mountains. Several small mountain villages are located in that area.  We are a residential architect there: we are one of a handful of Cashiers NC architects. Down US Highway 64 east, is Lake Toxaway. Not quite to far to the east, coming toward Cashiers, is Sapphire. In the other direction (west on 64) is Highlands NC.
